As special as the 70th anniversary of Eyemouth Herring Queen was for all involved it was made even more of an occasion for one former queen.

Anne Rosie, who was crowned in 1946, is the oldest surviving Herring Queen and she welcomed 30 relatives from all over the world to celebrate this year’s event. One who didn’t have to make much of a trip was sister Jean, a Herring Queen herself in 1956.
